Clothes represent a unique textile, as they simultaneously provide robustness against our daily activities and comfort (i.e., softness). For electronic devices to be fully integrated into clothes, the devices themselves must be as robust and soft as the clothes themselves. However, to date, no electronic device has ever possessed these properties, because(More)
PURPOSE To determine whether antiangiogenic action of the amniotic membrane (AM) can be mediated by HC·HA, a covalent complex of hyaluronan (HA) and the heavy chain (HC) of inter-α-inhibitor, purified from AM soluble extract. METHODS HC·HA action on viability, proliferation, attachment, death, migration, and differentiation of human umbilical vein(More)
Here we show that essentially any Fe compounds spanning Fe salts, nanoparticles, and buckyferrocene could serve as catalysts for single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) forest growth when supported on AlO(x) and annealed in hydrogen. This observation was explained by subsurface diffusion of Fe atoms into the AlO(x) support induced by hydrogen annealing where(More)
We present a method to both precisely and continuously control the average diameter of single-walled carbon nanotubes in a forest ranging from 1.3 to 3.0 nm with ~1 Å resolution. The diameter control of the forest was achieved through tuning of the catalyst state (size, density, and composition) using arc plasma deposition of nanoparticles. This 1.7 nm(More)
Millimeter waves (30-300 GHz) are starting to be used in next generation high-speed wireless communications. To avoid electromagnetic interference in this wireless communication, finding a suitable electromagnetic wave absorber in the millimeter wave range is an urgent matter. In this work, we prepared a high-performance millimeter wave absorber composed of(More)
A continuous and wide range control of the diameter (1.9-3.2 nm) and density (0.03-0.11 g cm(-3) ) of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) forests is demonstrated by decoupling the catalyst formation and SWNT growth processes. Specifically, by managing the catalyst formation temperature and H2 exposure, the redistribution of the Fe catalyst thin film into(More)
We report a new direction for highly efficient carbon nanotube (CNT) synthesis where, in place of conventional highly reactive carbon feedstocks at low concentrations, highly stable carbon feedstocks at high concentrations were shown to produce superior yields. We found that a saturated hydrocarbon that is considered to possess a low reactivity, delivered(More)
Understanding the fundamental mechanisms and limiting processes of the growth of single-walled carbon nanotube (SWCNT) would serve as a guide to achieve further control on structural parameters of SWCNT. In this paper, we have studied the growth kinetics of a series of SWCNT forests continuously spanning a wide range of diameters (1.9–3.2 nm), and have(More)
Iron oxide (Fe(2)O(3)) has four crystal structures: gamma-, epsilon-, beta-, and alpha-Fe(2)O(3). Until now, routes of the phase transformations among the four Fe(2)O(3) phases have not been clarified because a systematic synthesis that yields all four Fe(2)O(3) phases has yet to be reported. Herein we report the synthesis of a series of Fe(2)O(3)(More)
